  1. Just finished three scope boxes for my newest scopes. 1. Skywatcher 150 Heritage 2. Skywatcher 180 Mak 3. Zeiss Telementor (mark 1) The 150 Heritage box also doubles up as a riser for the scope in case there are no other options available (i.e. picnic table etc.)
  2. Just standard card from Hobbycraft (not too thick) DC-Fix gloss self adhesive wrap to the outside and DC-Fix black velour as the flocking internally. This mod also works with the H130, here's one I did previously.
  3. Final mod, a rubber buffer for the scope to rest on whilst its being transported. The buffer is high enough to ensure the collimation screws do not foul the MDF base.
  4. Also modded the original loose focuser with some spare flocking in the un-threaded areas either side Initially did it full length but found out that it fouled so I cut it down to approx half the original. No more PTFE tape on the threads for me as it works perfectly.
  5. Finished another couple of mods today, the first being the addition of a finder shoe on the base so the red dot finder is carefully secured whilst being transported.
  6. Now fitted a conventional finder shoe so I have the option to use an optical finder or RDF
  7. Ages ago I fitted a shroud to my long gone Heritage 130 and it made the scope a lot more useable by reducing stray light from street lights in my semi suburban location. With my recent purchase of a Heritage 150 I thought I would re-create the shroud on a larger scale and followed the same thinking as before. I also took the opportunity to flock the lower half of the OTA as well as blacking out the edges of the secondary mirror.
  8. Just noticed that the inside of the 0.965" ep barrel has not been painted black, is this common for this ep?
  9. Hi, where are you based, not sure if I like the idea of posting.
  10. Hi I have an Equinox 120 and I live in Preston It has red Primaluce Lab rings and has been flocked internally, will send photos tomorrow if you are interested. Regards Nigel
